Rooms To Be Named For Owen, Astor Families At Town Hall

Bernards Township's governing body wants to honor the former owners of the English Tudor estate that now serves at the township's center of government activitiy. 

At Tuesday night's government meeting, the Township Committee is expected to give names to two conference rooms.

A smaller room would be named for the Astor family. Colonel John Jacob Astor V purchased the estate in 1950. He was the son of John Jacob Astor VI, who perished in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. The building was acquired by the municipality in 1968.
